This Order permits the management of development within a new two tier planning system with both district councils and the Department of the Environment operating as planning authorities where appropriate. An application for planning permission is to be made to the appropriate council or, as the case may be, the Department. The Order also deals with consultation before the grant of planning permission for development outlined in Schedule 3 and other procedures relative to planning permission application. Schedule 3 development also concerns water.

Authors and Publishers


The United Kingdom has historically played a leading role in developing parliamentary democracy and in advancing literature and science. At its zenith in the 19th century, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth's surface. The first half of the 20th century saw the UK's strength seriously depleted in two world wars and the Irish Republic's withdrawal from the union. The second half witnessed the dismantling of the Empire and the UK rebuilding itself into a modern and prosperous European nation.
